Food is often the first thing to suffer from an extended outage, and a standby generator ensures the appliances operate as usual. The average loss to the homeowner who loses food due to a power outage is $250 to $500.

Heating and Air Conditioning

With a standby generator, your home’s HVAC system continues to operate, providing continued comfort for your family. When a power outage occurs during the winter, burst or frozen pipes may result with an average cost of $10,000 to the individual homeowner in pipe repair and damages to the home due to flooding.

Lights and Security

Whether a power outage is due to thunderstorms, a hurricane or ice storm, your home’s lighting and security system remains on. Though your block may be dark, thieves know the security is still operational when the lights are on. Contact a Tioga electrician in Fort Worth, Texas to schedule installation.

Water and Flood

Keeping water out of the basement with a sump pump is an important task, especially during flooding rains.

Life Sustaining Equipment

Furthermore, thieves can easily steal a portable generator. If you are concerned with the health of a loved one during power outages, contact a Tioga electrician in Fort Worth, Texas for whole house generator installation.

You Choose the Coverage

Whole house generators are available in a variety of sizes, enabling you to select a generator that powers all of your home’s normal functions, or just the essentials. Installation will require an electrician in Fort Worth, Texas due to the various electrical installations required.

Portable Generators

Portable generators can power a window air conditioner, recharge a freezer or refrigerator, power lamps and an oxygen concentrator, or a basic life support system such as a ventilator, though not all at once. The price is often reasonable, and they typically operate on gasoline or diesel.

The disadvantages of a portable are the limited number of outlets to power necessities. A typical portable will have from two to four 110v outlets and one 220v outlet. An additional disadvantage is the need to use heavy-duty extension cords, which provide the hazard of persons tripping over cords, and shock if the cords are located in a wet environment.

Portables also have the disadvantage of the fuel supply, and the problems with the available fuel. When your fuel supply is exhausted, will you be able to obtain additional fuel? Furthermore, available fuel contains ethanol and does not store well for long, before the ethanol converts to water. Ethanol containing fuel will clog, and can damage the engine’s carburetor.

You should crank a portable generator and allow it to run for a few minutes every week or two. An automatic whole house generator does this automatically, and does not rely upon ethanol containing fuel, as it uses natural or propane gas.

A whole house generator provides the ideal solution when you expect a reliable electrical source. If you are considering the installation of a whole house generator contact a Tioga electrician in Fort Worth, Texas for an estimate, and/or installation.

Automatic Generators

An automatic generator senses the power outage, starts the generator, and has the power on in 10 seconds or less. The installation requires a licensed electrician in Fort Worth, Texas . Automatic generators have significant advantages over portable generators:

  • Automatic generators use propane or natural gas for operation until the power comes back on, without refueling.
  • Natural and propane gas do not have the disadvantages of gas or diesel fuel containing ethanol.
  • Automatic generators are able to sense when the power comes back on, and automatically shut down.
  • Automatic generators self-start weekly to ensure it is ready for an outage.
  • Automatic generators can run an entire home, including a heat pump or central air conditioning, or most of the home depending on the size of the generator you select.
  • Automatic generators operate when the power fails, so even if you are away, the food in the refrigerator and freezer will be safe, and during the winter, the heat will operate, preventing frozen or burst pipes.
  • Automatic generators ensure the home security system continues to safeguard the home, its occupants.
  • Automatic generators operate quietly, unlike noisy portables.

I had a slab leak, and Terry from Tioga pluming came out and fixed our issue.  He has decades of experience, and he was able to reroute a new line else where, instead of having to breakup the slab.  I am super thankful for his knowledge and experience.  He was very up front and respectful.  I would highly recommend them.

My family has known the Carter family, owners of Tioga Contractors, both personally and professionally for 36 years.  In these days, where integrity is a word that few really understand, let alone follow day in and day out, The Carter’s definitely live it! Their company was still is at the top of the industry in commercial plumbing, bar none! This ‘choice’ that the Carter’s made many years ago is now instilled in their residential plumbing and electrical service divisions.

Everything that we all as homeowners look for, they deliver, and with on-time, up-front and very fair pricing.

We purchased a tankless water heater from Tioga, and we love it! They were on-time, very professional, down-to-earth, and gave us a complimentary full-house inspection. They hauled away our old water heater, cleaned up very well, and even called back a couple of days later to check up on us. We will always use Tioga for plumbing or electrical needs in the future.

I was at a point in my life where I had decided that service was an outdated, obsolete word—just throw it in with the eight tracks, Polaroid cameras, typewriters, and phone booths. Nobody cared to provide service or cared for repeat customers. This especially was my experience with plumbers. The last two that I had were the icing on the cake as far as I was concerned.

All I want in life is to have a service tech that will take care of the problems in my life. I know that Tioga will take care of any plumbing problem I have—fast and economically. I readily recommend them to all my friends and family.
